It's not a matter of whether it can support a format, it's a matter of whether it does. You can't call a TV a universal HDR display if it doesn't support all the formats.
Look "existing operational" up in a dictionary!

Again, using the VP9 Profile 2 compliant Chromecast Ultra, the Vizio P TV does support all existing operational HDR formats, therefore it's a universal HDR TV for the time being.

Universal audio/video receiver (Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, etc.) is achieved.
Universal HDR TV (HDR10, Dolby Vision, HEVC HLG HDR, VP9-HLG / VP9-PQ YouTube HDR, Dynamic HDR) is required.

Push for universal HDR TV!

Operational: in or ready for use

HDR10+ is ready for use.

There are exactly 0 universal HDR displays currently on the market.

Where is an existing operational HDR10+ content?

Existing: That exists, or has existence, especially that exists now.

For example, the support of Dolby Vision by Sony is still tbc (i.e. to be confirmed / announced / to be checked with operational source content) in my book.

If there are demos of the format, then the formats are functioning and ready for use. But the huge difference between HDR10+ and Technicolor HDR is that HDR10+ content is currently being developed by an actual streaming service, and it's supported by one of the biggest studios, while there is no talk of Technicolor HDR being implemented in any actual movies or TV shows.

Also, I used to have a Chromecast Ultra, and I can tell you that the picture quality is not anywhere near what the internal apps on my TV (my TV supports VP9 Profile 2, and therefore VP9-HDR10 and VP9-HLG, natively) can produce. It's a nice solution if you want support for VP9-HDR10 and VP9-HLG, but the picture quality on the CCU leaves a lot to be desired. I ended up selling my Chromecast Ultra for this very reason.

Technicolor HDR is not a usual HDR format.
"Advanced HDR [i.e. + Technicolor HDR + SDR-to-HDR up-conversion] is a universal distribution system supporting all formats of HDR." [Technicolor]
https://twitter.com/Technicolor/stat...35919490146304

Technicolor HDR is "standardized in ETSI" by TS 103 433 – SL-HDR1.
http://www.etsi.org/deliver/etsi_ts/...33v010101p.pdf

Technicolor HDR is using the SMPTE ST 2094 Dynamic Metadata for Color Volume Transform: ST 2094-20 (Philips) and ST 2094-30 (Technicolor).

P.S.
As to the ETSI document which you linked in that post, to give full credit where credit is due, SL-HDR was jointly developed by Technicolor, Philips, STMicro and CableLabs. Not getting much traction at all.
For the time being, the Technicolor HDR is still not operational as far as I know.

Fair enough, Technicolor HDR is not operational.

According to Penton-Man's definition, though, HDR10+ is definitely operational, as there is now deployment of the format from content providers to Amazon, as he previously stated in that thread.

That's not what he meant. He was referring to commercial deployment to customers in the field. In this case, it's Transkoder techs delivering HDR10+ content to Amazon, as he mentions here: http://forum.blu-ray.com/showpost.ph...postcount=2999

If you ask him, I'm 100% convinced he'd consider the format to be "operational."

FYI the 2017 LGs recently received a firmware update that included Technicolor. Now whether or not there is any content or not i'm not sure, but the TV's are technically ready now.

Thanks.
It is not Technicolor HDR that was added, but it is Technicolor Expert mode, TV settings optimized by Technicolor’s color scientists.
http://flatpanelshd.com/news.php?sub...&id=1508155180



"New Technicolor mode should provide a very precise setting without any need to switch Picture settings in the menu. For many users, this result could be very faithful and accurate images even without calibration with the appropriate tools. The Technicolor video mode can be used with sources in the Standard Dynamic Range and High Dynamic Range."

Indeed. We had the announcement waaaaaay back in April - thread - and an estimated date of September content which came and went. Latest estimate I read was "before the end of the year". It's a little reminiscent of Netflix's end of 2016 deadline, that people kept mentioning last year!

It is to my constant annoyance that the "HDR10+ on Amazon" thread title used the present tense, instead of the future tense. That wrongly implies that something is here which is not here - yet.

HDR format war or marketing war?

Sony Beta and VHS took a couple of years with product in both formats. Finally Ma and Pa picked the decidedly poorer technology VHS because more stuff was on VHS because more people bought VHS players because it was a less expensive player and more stuff was on VHS and the vicious circle finally swamped Sony.
Then Sony was so mad about BETA's demise when HD rolled around they went nuts with the propaganda, never mind HDDVD could be pressed on current DVD machinery with minimal additional cost and would not require completely new and different machinery. I don't remember there being any substantially better picture quality in HDDVD vs BR, but I do remember the expensive and hard to produce multilayer disks.
So today is more of the same without of course a product for the masses. Who in their right mind, other than AVSers would layout that kind of money for disks in either format and buy a new player on top of that.

Wouldn't surprise me to see them both go the way of 3D or curved screens.

NOTE: I am a 100% Streaming viewer with a TCL 55P605 Roku TV that supports HDR10 and DV. No physical media player connected.

Perhaps I don't understand the issues that having a UHD Player presents, but is this really a 'Format War'? Wouldn't the same content (HDR10, HDR10+, DV) come on the same physical media that will run on your UHD player and based on the supported HDR capability of the Player and your TV Display present the best possible HDR content? In any of these cases it will be a HDR quality picture. My limited reading seems to indicate that HDR10 is a base layer that HDR10+ and DV utilize. Based on your UHD Player and TV display you would at the very least get a default HDR10 quality picture, which is pretty nice quality. Same for streaming. Support for all three (3) would be nice, but if you have a HDR capable display, at the very least you will get a HDR10 quality stream. I guess my thought is that if these three (3) formats are going to battle it out, but I still get at the very least a HDR10 quality stream to my display, I don't feel like I have lost out.

Like a lot of things in electronics, this seems like more of a 'Marketing War' than a 'Format War'.

Of course the BDA doesn't think it's a format war. They're going to be making HDR10+ the mandatory base layer. That right there is a war-preventing move.

Request to the BDA to impose the support of all is specified HDR formats

The BDA could stop the HDR confusion in consumers' minds.

But consumers don’t have to endure hardship of audio format war thanks to the consumer-driven audio/video receivers (AVR) makers. They support all audio formats. It is not their logic business to interfere in consumer choice: a playback device should be able to play any existing content the consumers want.


Different audio or video formats are just different software running on playback devices (AVR, media player, TV).
https://www.avsforum.com/forum/465-hi...l#post50302361
https://www.avsforum.com/forum/465-hi...l#post50480993

Furthermore, software development is much easier and faster on modern operating systems of HDR TV than on rigid and complex DSP platforms of audio/video receiver.


We, consumers, can’t let "what happens in the industry happens".
After all, we, consumers, pay!

Consumers can just require Dolby Vision TV makers or HDR10+ TV makers to just add a piece of HDR software in order to be compatible with the other HDR format. This upgraded TV will remain the same: same panel, same electronic parts, same mechanical parts!

For example, the Sony Z9D doesn’t support Dolby Vision at launch.
Quote:
Sony already made the announcement - no Dolby Vision support.
Someone mentioned that Samsung's dynamic metadata HDR10 proposal passed with the competent authorities and perhaps we will see something like a dynamic HDR update on the Z in the future, but this is pure speculation.
Nobody should buy this set expecting a DV upgrade in the future - it simply ain't happening.

Later, the Sony Z9D will get Dolby Vision with a free software upgrade.

Dolby Vision is currently the most complex HDR format due to its dynamic metadata color volume mapping and its 12-bit dual layer architecture. Therefore, if a TV’s SoC like the Sony Z9D TV's SoC is powerful enough to support Dolby Vision, this SoC is able to support any other HEVC HDR format like HDR10+.

In the same way, if a UHD Blu-ray player’s SoC is powerful enough to support Dolby Vision, this SoC is able to support HDR10+.


The BDA wants to avoid a HDR format war, because a format war is detrimental to consumers, and therefore to its members (manufacturers, movie studios …).
In exchange for the addition of HDR10+, the BDA should require the TV makers to support both HDR10+ and Dolby Vision.

Latest Yoeri Geutskens' diagram

November update:
Philips entry split into two (EU/@TPVision vs P&F USA) because diverging rather than converging.
Also added @vim eo and @Kaleid escape (both HDR10 only).

Spoiler!
@Yoeri What kind of proof do you have of Vimeo supporting HDR10? Does it work on any devices yet? Are there any sample videos you can point to?

Also, Vizio and Chromecast support DV, HDR10, and HLG. Oppo technically supports all three as well (I've found one HLG file to test that plays back via the Oppo 203 and triggers HLG on my Vizio P).

And YouTube supports HDR10 and HLG (upload and playback).

I'm going to set up a company and support SL-HDR1 and HLG but not HDR10, just to see how he manages to represent that on his diagram!

HDR video formats - the prospects



"...
In practice, probably few consumers are aware of all the ins and outs. Universal HDR support is a strong selling point. It works like an insurance premium. After all, as a consumer you never know what will happen in the future. ...

Do I favor one particular HDR format? I advocate universal HDR support (especially in hardware) but that doesn’t mean I think HDR formats stand equal chances. HDR10 is omnipresent and Dolby Vision unlikely to be beaten as the premium format. HLG stands a chance of establishing itself as the format for broadcast TV and live OTT streaming but needs to work harder to gain support. SL-HDR1 and HDR10+ seem to be fighting an uphill battle and running behind." [Yoeri Geutskens]

Full HDR experience: only 23% of HDR TV shipped in 2017

""We expect that only 23 percent of the ultra-high-definition televisions that ship in 2017 will offer the full HDR experience," IHS Markit analyst Paul Gray said. "The remainder will be able to decode a signal, but lack the high contrast capability to display HDR content to an advantage."

The cost of backlights for liquid-crystal displays (LCDs) remains the biggest obstacle to HDR, the analysis said."
https://www.broadbandtvnews.com/2017...7-9mi-in-2021/



"The truth is that to be an HDR TV, you don’t need to be able to show the benefits of HDR. It’s true. All you need to do is to add the software so you can read the HDR information contained in a signal, and then use that to display an image. What this means is that you have HDR TVs that cannot show brighter highlights, that cannot show richer colors, and cannot do local dimming to improve contrast. It means that when you send an HDR signal to these fake HDR TVs, you will get an image that is virtually identical to an SDR image.

To truly show HDR content with benefits over SDR, a real HDR TV needs to have true local dimming, wide color gamut support, and produce highlights of 500-600 nits or brighter."

Those categories on the graph look strange.

What is the blue "LCD HD HDR Compatible"? Would those be 1080p panels, and the other three are just assumed to be 4K?

Correct. Sony has some 1080p HDR compatible panels right now.

HDMI 2.1 specification released

"SAN JOSE, California – November 28, 2017 - HDMI Forum, Inc. today announced the release of Version 2.1 of the HDMI® Specification which is now available to all HDMI 2.0 adopters. This latest HDMI Specification supports a range of higher video resolutions and refresh rates including 8K60 and 4K120, and resolutions up to 10K. Dynamic HDR formats are also supported, and bandwidth capability is increased up to 48Gbps.
Supporting the 48Gbps bandwidth is the new Ultra High Speed HDMI Cable. The cable ensures high bandwidth dependent features are delivered including uncompressed 8K video with HDR. It features exceptionally low EMI (electro-magnetic interference) which reduces interference with nearby wireless devices. The cable is backwards compatible and can be used with the existing installed base of HDMI devices."
https://www.hdmi.org/download/hdmi_2...Release_EN.pdf




"All products must comply with Version 2.1 of the HDMI Specification and the HDMI 2.1 Compliance Test Specification (CTS); and until the CTS is available and a product has passed compliance testing a product cannot claim to be 2.1 compliant or market that it supports 2.1 features.
The HDMI 2.1 Compliance Test Specification (CTS) will be published in stages during Q1-Q3 2018."

The BBC is telling the world that all the 2017 Samsung range of TVs support HLG!

See the list of supported models here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/help/l...JsdWUgcGxhbmV0

Quick, someone at Samsung needs to get them to censor that information! They don't want anyone to find out that they support HLG and this is a published statement by a publicly funded body!
